Redeem SPG Points for 2 Emirates Business Class Tickets, 5 Nights at W Santiago and More!

Link: SPG Package

This is not the first time you could redeem your Starpoints for a package that included an Emirates flight. This is a nice package that will likely go for hundreds of thousands of Starpoints but it is something you may want to watch!

Here is what this Emirates business class package includes:

  • Two Emirates round-trip Business Class tickets on the inaugural flight from Dubai (UAE) to Santiago (Chile) (Departs July 5, 2018 – Returns July 11 , 2018 from and back to Dubai)
  • Emirates Business Class tickets include:
    • Chauffeur-drive service to and from the airport in Dubai; access to Business Class lounge at Dubai airport, priority check-in, boarding and baggage delivery
  • A 5-night stay in a one-bedroom Marvelous Suite for two at the W Santiago Hotel (Check-in July 5, 2018 – Check-out July 10, 2018 )
  • Complimentary daily buffet breakfast for two
  • Two complimentary drinks at Red2One rooftop bar
  • Complimentary dinner for two at KARAI by Mitsuharu
  • Airport transfer to and from W Santiago Hotel
  • Experience is for two people

What Is This Package Worth?

This is a huge package! Of course, we cannot put price tags on all the SPG packages but this one is much easier to do that with. While none of us would ever pay the prices below for this package, it is nice to see how much it is worth as a package:

  • Flights – $17,000
  • Suite – $2,775
  • Dinner – $200?
  • Airport transfer – $100?
  • Breakfast – included in the above rate
  • Total – $20,000

The Spectacular Suite at the W Santiago

Let’s assume a value of 4 cents per point (which is somewhat normal for SPG Moments packages) and we can see that it could cost as much as 500,000 Starpoints. Since this is the inaugural flight for this route, it could even go for a little more.

I would say that anything under 300,000 Starpoints would be a really great deal!

  • 300,000 starpoints would get 900,000 Marriott points. That would be 5 travel packages … 35 nights in hotels … 700,000 airline miles (alaska can book 7 one way Emirates busies s class tix )

    And you find this to be worth 300,000 star points. Where does your math add up?

  • Oops ! 3 travel packages. Still. 21 nights in hotels and 360,000 alaska points.

    • For this specific type of package, I mean. There are a lot of people who are really into inaugural flights and this is not available with awards. For me, I would not use my SPG points for this but there will obviously be some that will spend hundreds of thousands of points for it. I guess I would say maybe more like 200,000 Starpoints but it will go for way more than that.
      I would personally go with your idea for using that many points myself anyway!

    • That many Alaska miles would let you book between the US and Dubai roundtrip for almost two tickets. That is what this package gives (except for Dubai – South America).

    • You and me both! Or I’ll take a World Series package! These are the great things about the breadth of the SPG program – for now!
